Charges laid in break and enter spree, Annapolis County, N.S.

RCMP laid more than 309 charges against three Annapolis County individuals for their involvement in at least 46 break and enters.

Annapolis District RCMP Street Crime Enforcement Unit (SCEU) conducted a five month investigation into break and enters in rural parts of Annapolis, Kings, Lunenburg and Queens Counties that date back as far as November 2012.

The crimes, that targeted jewelry and firearms, mostly occurred during daylight hours. Many homeowners were not aware that their homes had been broken into and others simply chose not to report the crimes. The investigation involved RCMP officers from all four counties.

The charges involve Break and Enter, Possession of Stolen Property, and Conspiracy to Commit Break and Enter. Two males, 42-year-old Perry Fader and 56-year-old- Kerry Laffin were remanded into custody until their next court appearances. The third individual, 24-year-old Brittany Green, was released on a court recognizance and is due back in court on December 3rd.

Police were able to recover some of the stolen property. The investigation is still ongoing with further charges expected.
